Loving John, a "thunder-boy"

Sometimes as we read the Bible we see John as such a sweetie. All those epistles about love, all that deep stuff in the Book of John about love, light, life, etc.

But John definitely had a passionate side:

"Teacher," said John, "we saw a man driving out demons in your name and we told him to stop, because he was not one of us."

But the people there did not welcome him, because he was heading for Jerusalem. When the disciples James and John saw this, they asked, "Lord, do you want us to call fire down from heaven to destroy them?

They replied, "When you sit on your glorious throne, we want to sit in places of honor next to you, one on your right and the other on your left."

Yet, for all that angry, spiteful, arrogant, ambition... Jesus loved him. And Jesus changed him. How wonderful!!!!
